Do you remember the show “Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush” with Chris Evans? Or am I showing my age?!  Well it seems that some of us are forgetting to USE our toothbrush during the pandemic – as well as resorting to DIY dentistry.   A study of 2,000 adults by the Oral Health Foundation found that 24 per cent of adults had tried to fix their teeth problems at home, while 55 per cent of had admitted to neglecting their oral health. Nearly one in five had admitted they were NOT brushing their teeth twice a day! And twice a day is actually the bare minimum recommended by professionals.

I am sure you do not need telling NOT to try any DIY tooth repairs at home.  BUT did you know that dental professionals recommend changing your toothbrush every three to four months?

We stock an eco-friendly bamboo toothbrush from The Sutcliffe Toothbrush Company – they come in three colours and are £3.75 each. We also stock their dental floss, which has reduced plastic packaging.  Both were designed by a dentist with 16 year’s experience.  Check out the “Dental Care” section of the Shop.
